Artist Sam Galbrait helps help create a three dimensional model of The Moor market

It might take a little less time to build than the real thing, and it won’t cost £18 million.

But this 3D model of the Moor Market - which is being created by youngsters over a four-week project - will take centre stage among the stalls once it is complete.

Children are able to help create the model, built from foam squares and newspaper, every Thursday, Friday and Saturday this month from 1-3pm.

Artist Sam Galbraithe, whose work depicting the market old and new is on show in the shopping facility, is running the classes with traders.

Trader Donna Tuxford, who runs the Craft Evolution stall, said: “ I think it is just brilliant to get the children involved during the school holidays.

“It gives them something to do and it helps us work with the community.

“It shows that markets aren’t just a place to shop, they are all about the community.”

Today there is another event in the market, when trader Susannah Youdan from S&J’s Pantry leads free cooking demonstrations for children.

She is showing them how to make fruit and savoury tarts at 11am and 3pm.
